Marion Regenscheit, organiser of the Literature Festival BuchBasel in Switzerland, will be on a research trip to India. The aim of this research trip through Kolkata, Jaipur, and Delhi, is to see other literature festivals and learn about how they are organized and to get in touch with local literature organizations and players. This research would also help to invite authors or performers to BuchBasel 2020.
Marion will also be part of a festival directors’ roundtable at Jaipur Bookmark, which runs parallel to Jaipur Literature Festival.
She holds a Master’s in German Literature and Media Studies from the Universities of Basel and Berlin, and a Master’s in Library Science and Information Management from the University of Zürich. She worked at the University Library of Basel before taking up her current position in 2017.
